Board

A Party for the People, Planet, and Peace

Board

We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters, and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics. We are volunteers and do not benefit monetarily in any way.

The Board (also referred to as the Coordinating Committee) conducts the organizational and day-to-day business for the party. These positions are elected annually as described in our bylaws. We also have a number of working groups that work in conjunction with the board and other active members. For general contact, please use contact@greenpartyin.com.

We foremost acknowledge every previous board member and volunteer for helping us reach the point we are today.

Cannabis Caucus
Neal “Skywolf” Smith
cannabis@greenpartyin.com

My name is “Skywolf” Neal Smith. I have been an activist in one cause or another since 1968. Since
1972, my main focus has been on Cannabis issues and I have served the Indiana Chapter for the
Reform of Marijuana Laws (INORML) as Vice Chairman (1999 – 2010) and as Chairman (2010 –2016, 2017 – 2019). I currently serve as Chairman Emeritus and Political Director of that organization. In 2001, I co-founded the Indiana Green Party and in 2002, the Marion County Green Party. I have also served as an Activist Member and Union Steward for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW 700) during my employment at Kroger, Inc.


I attended Indiana University, graduating in 1975 with a Double Major in Journalism and Sociology. I also served as a Journalist, mostly in broadcast news, for 13 years. I am also adept in video and still photography. I have generally retired from the work-a-day world, however, I do still do some freelance photography.


I look forward to using any and all of my skills in my role as Adviser to the IGP Cannabis Caucus.
There is no justification for locking people up for using the world’s most versatile and helpful plant.
